natural is trying nothing less than to alter the image of his home country with his architectural ideas. is quite a house he has now the creator of the machines you're about to see likes to call the living architect and i suppose this dragon behind me is a kind of architecture that moves it's certainly frightening from here anyway this is currently roaming the streets of cali in france but the locals worried about. it's being built to entertain. people by a 5th a company called la machine in fact it's become quite a tourist attraction. a huge dragon is rampaging through the streets a cowling hissing breathing fire and it's here to stay so it's out to get a good look at its new layer and the people who live there but they need to be on
